About Pixel Palace

Pixel Palace is the exciting programme of digital arts and new media at Tyneside Cinema. This programme takes the form of arts residencies, commissions, live events and exhibitions. We experiment with new ways of sharing creative work, ideas and stories as we move towards the future of cinema.

Tyneside Cinema’s mission is to bring together people to experience, enjoy and engage with the past, present and future of cinema. Pixel Palace aims to extend and deliver this mission by working with new media artists and curators embracing digital arts, not only to reflect upon the cinema’s past, but to engage new audiences in its expanded present and pervasive future.
Jean Luc Goddard’s classic film “Alphaville” provides a creative starting point for Pixel Palace to explore the influence technology has upon us, shaping our behaviour and understanding of the world.

As Godard predicted, life is indeed shaped by computers. In Alphaville, in our world today, the cinema is everywhere, in the flick of a cigarette lighter, in the glow of a light bulb… it is in the way we perceive our world, in the way we speak, in the way we dream. We have no need of entering a movie theatre to experience cinema; life itself is just like a movie.

Kelly Brougher (2008). ‘The Cinema Effect: Illusion, Reality, and the Moving image’

Pixel Palace aims to work with artists to investigate the way in which the cinema reflects life but also the way in which technology has an “Alphaville” effect.

How to apply

Please email submissions to Dominic Smith, Digital Arts Manager at the Tyneside Cinema: info [at] thepixelpalace.org with the subject heading: basic.fm

Artists will be notified via email regarding the outcome of their submitted work(s).
